MOEA-Based Approach to Delayed Decisions for Robust Conceptual Design


This paper presents a modification of our multi-objective concept-based EC method to enhance the simultaneous development of a robust conceptual front. It involves a hierarchy of abstractive descriptions of the design, and a structured EC approach. The robustness, treated here by a novel MOEA approach, is for uncertainties, which result from delaying decisions during the conceptual design stage. The suggested procedure involves a robust non-dominancy sorting algorithm.
